If both Apple fans and critics agree on one thing, the MacBook keyboard is shitty Since Apple introduced the butterfly mechanism with the redesigned MacBook in 2015, Apple notebook users have a love-hate relationship with their Macs. Like in, they love everything about the MacBook, but they hate the keyboard hate .
In response to the increasing criticism of noise, travel and dust entering the keyboard of the keyboard – named after the shape of the keyboard hinges under the keys – Apple has taken several steps. Initially, a MacBook and MacBook Pro Keyboard Service Program was launched, offering a free repair for devices manufactured between 201
Even with the free repair, these are pretty big problems for notebooks, which can cost up to $ 2,500. Therefore, Apple has tried to solve the problem with the latest MacBook Pro refresh by attaching a silicone membrane under each button to prevent dirt from entering. The small rubber band also dampens the sound of the keys and makes them a little bit lighter. This attempt to repair the Butterfly keyboard should be the right one, and finally, the latest MacBook Pro was not part of the repair program.
But as a stopover, it's not a very good one. Long-time journalist and Apple user Johanna Stern wrote this week a column for the Wall Street Journal, which makes the keyboard of the latest MacBook Air absolutely rude. This is exactly the same thing that should actually cure the problems of the MacBook Pro. She writes of "the pain of using an Apple laptop keyboard that has failed after four months" and an "insanely irritating" experience.
Missing Points (and Letters)
To bring home her point, Stern offers several options to read the article: with or without E and R and with or without double E or double T, and imitate What Stern says, the most common problems MacBooks have with theirs and those of other users. It also suggests a number of tips to keep the keyboard of your Air working. These include spraying with a can of compressed air, using an external keyboard (which I do when writing this story on a MacBook) and instead an HP Specter. 19659010] MacBook Pro Touchbar with Function Keys "width =" 1200 "height =" 800 "data-imageid =" 100788787 "data-license =" IDG "/> Leif Johnson The keys of the MacBook Pro are barely

They think that one of the most respected journalists in the world makes a serious impression, but that is not the case, instead apologizing to the "small number of users who have problems with theirs Third-generation Butterfly keyboard. "This is Apple's for" We know it's a problem, but it's not widespread enough to do anything about it. "So you just have to worry about it."
Also, Apple can not do much at the moment, and while adding the new MacBook Pro and MacBook Air to the Keyboard Service program is only a temporary solution, Stern's experience suggests that this might be a big deal The problem is not confined to a few computers, despite Apple claims. It is a systematic error of the butterfly keyboard experiment that worsens with use. And it has to work.
Scissor Beats Butterfly
When the butterfly mechanism arrived in 2016 with the MacBook, it was called a breakthrough in keyboard design. Apple said it was more comfortable and responsive than the traditional scissors keys on previous MacBooks, and praised the precision, accuracy and stability of its incredibly flat hinges. And it's also 40 percent thinner, of course.
